Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired university teacher and librarian with interest in Civil War burials and burial practices. Also undertaking to photograph all cemeteries in Erath County, TX, and surrounding counties, then to enter the tombstone information into the database. Many older tombstones are in such shape as to be illegible, so corrections to bad or missing biographical information is welcomed.

Please make requests for additions, corrections, links, etc., directly from the memorials' "edit" feature rather than here. I'll get to them much faster. (Transfers to direct descendants, please, and not in bulk lots!)

Hello Ken,
I wondered if you are related to Emma & Jesse,
Also if you have come across a gravestone for Golda Howard? (I don't know her married name so I gather it would be impossible)

Hello there,

I just wanted to say how hilarious I find this headstone for Bob Peacock, son of Bruner and Anne Peacock. Bruner was my grandfather's brother, and my mom was close to her cousin Bob. It's so funny to see "He went somewhere else" for date of death; as of this writing, 29 Jan. 2015, Bob is alive and well and living in Ecuador. Anyway, thank you so much for photographing the graves of some of my family members. Oh, and I saw you've got virtual cemeteries for several Alabama CSA units. How about one for the 39th? My g-g-grandfather, Daniel Jordan Peacock, served in that unit, Co. D. His Find A Grave Memorial# is 75685238.

Thank you again,
Colleen Kent

Goyne-Fairy Cemetery
Ooops, my mistake - you were referring to another memorial of the same person that I overlooked. However, the other memorial was made 4 months AFTER Bo made his memorial. She is the one who made the duplication. Please ask her to delete hers and she is welcome to send me the edits and to post the photo. ab

Ken: There are two Goyne - George W and Geo W - father and son. You are correct, the George W is misspelled and I will correct that. Really hard to see that "G" and I can see where Bo got the spelling. No deletion necessary. Thanks. ab

Ken, I am related to the Price family members who are buried in this cemetery. I have death certificates for others that are buried here, but nothing is shown for them in this site. Please tell me if you transcribed all graves and the year. Thanks so much for your time, effort, and volunteer work.
